I think something in the way you go about your everyday life changes when you know that love is a fact. When you’ve stepped over that line from knowing that there’s lots of songs and movies about it to containing it within yourself and feeling that you know its every curve. There’s a change in how you interact with people around you, however unnoticeable that is to said people. A change in how you think about the world and how you think about the future. It’s corny and trite and embarrassing and silly but it really changes everything while changing nothing at all. And it makes it so much easier to be happy with everything around you and to fall in love with your world.
Yes I’m probably talking nonsense here. Words can’t be as strong as I’d like them to be. But I feel certain that what I’m saying is right, somehow. Certain that this feeling will never leave me and that I’ll never feel that certain aching emptiness that so plagues the adolescent years again.
